Informal Club Breakfast Open to All – Back at the Bistro at Fauquier Hospital

Gathering of FARA member’s open to all interested in Amateur Radio. It is back to being at the Bistro, located in Fauquier Hospital located in the lower level. Join us for a time to socialize, discuss and ask questions about amateur radio.

A difference since before covid is that the entrance nearest the Bistro now requires a card key for access.  You can’t enter from there (but you can still use it as an exit). You must enter the building from the main entrance. Masks were not required, and you should be able to walked in, take a immediate right to the and follow the signs to the Bistro which to take you to the elevator to go down.
